Hannelore Smith & Matthew Baxter, 2017
There is a strong connection between a craftsman and their tools, as well as an intimate knowledge of how materials will perform and react; a sense of intuition and precision is applied.
Through the act of creating, the workbench becomes scarred - a series of marks document the moments of contact between the maker and the material.
The Compositions reflect the negative space on the surface of the workbench - traces left by the maker at work.
